White House May Not Raise Minimum Age To Buy Long Guns


The White House has made recommendations aimed at stopping school shootings, but they have backed off President Trump's call to increase the minimum age for buying long guns to 21.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will chair a federal commission on school safety in order to ensure that, according to DeVos, "no student or family should ever have to live the horror of Parkland or Sandy Hook ever again."

Some recommendations include a full audit and review of the FBI tip line, which may not have acted on warnings about the Parkland student shooter. The White House is also directing the Justice Department to train school personnel with firearms.

Gun control advocates immediately panned the proposals.

Is the White House not going far enough with their proposals?
